We have a 3x5 Kelsey that is restored with new rollers and grippers and is complete with chase and ink disc, etc and has been repainted n Black. The 3x5 is $799 and shipping is available on this.

We are offering reprints of the Kelsey Printer’s Guide 9th edition here:


This little book is loaded with information for the beginner and the expert. Whether you run a Kelsey or a C&P or a Heidelberg, you’ll find something you didn’t know in these 40 pages. Get one and keep it in your press room!!

We are now manufacturing magnetic platen gauges. We offer a set of 4 gauges that you place at each corner of your platen …. they will work on most any platen press so long as it is not aluminum. They set your platen to .040” above type high to allow for packing. If you screw the included handle to one of the gauges, you have a type high lollypop for checking/setting roller height!

You can call me or buy online here:

We have a number of chases available for most sizes of c&p presses. Remember measure the inside of a chase frame for the size of a C&P press.

I don’t know what you call them, but i have 6 of the cast iron bracket holder things that will mount on the top of a type cabinet and will hold a couple of type cases out of which you are setting type.

We have a small 2/3 size case type cabinet with cases for $333. See it at:


We are selling most of the Chandler & Price presses with new manufacture foot treadles. A limited number of motors are available for additional $$.

If you want to do your own restoration, we can sell project presses, as well at a somewhat reduced price.

Recently we purchased about 44 cases of handset type in cabinets and several imposing stone tables as well as several cabinets of wood furniture. I’d like to especially sell a complete steel Hamilton cabinet full of cases … maybe 24 … i’d have to count them and they are full of type.

We probably have more hand feed press inventory than anyone else in the country!!
